What’s the Big Idea?
What if you and most people felt confident and in control of their finances? What if you and most people were savvy in their spending instead of deep in debt? What if you felt good enough about your own finances that you felt better able to be generous with your money? Or to make choices that are good for the planet? Imagine what kind of difference could this make in addressing big issues like poverty and social justice!
Your Money by Design is a social enterprise. I believe how we collectively spend our dollars can be effective in generating social change (think: buying fair trade coffee instead of coffee grown in damaging ways; purchasing quality rather than reflexively buying yet more sweat-shop junk; supporting local businesses who are connected to their community rather than multi-national conglomerates).
I further believe that wealth in the hands of people interested in a triple bottom line of people, planet and profits is better than wealth in the hands of folks who are concerned solely with the a single bottom line of profit.
My great hope is that my business helps people care about others and care about the planet become ninjas at handling their money, and eventually, wealthy. And then … and then…. so much is possible!
